As a big fan of Perlier’s Honey Miel line, I was looking forward to the opportunity to try their newest Royal Elixir Youth Serum, because it features some of the ingredients that I like in skincare products – rose water and royal jelly.

Perlier says that royal jelly is the main secret behind the longevity of the Queen bee, which lives 50 times longer than the other bees thanks to this extraordinary nourishment. According to the company, Honey Miel Royal Elixir Facial Serum is a “true cosmetic prodigy, which mixes the extraordinary regenerating power of Royal Jelly, fresh as if recently collected, [never freeze dried or made into a powder] and the incredible vital energy of true Italian organic Honey for unprecedented age-defying effectiveness.”

The formula features some other nifty perks. For example, you know that in most skincare products, water is one of the first names on the ingredient list. Perlier replaced water with rose distillate, which provides toning and moisturizing properties [and also smells good].

Another bonus that some might or might not like is gold shimmer, which is not very subtle. It doesn’t look like glitter, but the flecks are bigger than you’d find in, say, a highlighter, so that’s something to consider. I discovered that they add subtle luminosity to the skin when worn as a base layer under foundation.

Honey Miel Royal Elixir Facial Serum made my skin feel soft and nourished right away, and I can tell that it would work really well for mature skin. Personally, I was not a fan of the shimmer, but i did like the effects, so I decided to use it for my neck, decolletage area and shoulders. I’ve been kind of ignoring those areas for a long time, so I started taking extra care of them, and this would be a wonderful product to add to my routine.
This serum made my skin feel soft and nourished, but I wasn’t too excited about the shimmer in the formula. Instead, I am now using Honey Miel Royal Elixir Facial Serum to moisturize my neck, decolletage, and shoulders, and get the skin in those areas ready for Summer.
